    you stand patiently waiting at the elevator at 730 am. someone else walks up and actually pushes the down button.

    I occasionally find myself using my badge to try and "swipe" the elevator door, or bathroom door, or other doors without the ability to read swipe badges. Autopilot...a scary thing!

    I've had whole conversations with people who called my phone during the day when I was sleeping and forgot to silence it, and then totally forgotten the entire conversation. Apparently I can hold up my end of the conversation pretty well though - only my mom can tell when I'm sleep-talking
    I used to do this very same thing, lol.

    You can see in the dark better than most.
    Oh gosh, I never put 2 and 2 together on that one until my apartment building lost power one night while my boyfriend was in the kitchen. I basically went on a rescue mission to save him from slamming into the coffee table, the chairs, the walls. "What, you didn't see the couch? It's right there! What do you want the flashlight for?"
